Do’s and don’ts of babysitting

As an individual that has been a babysitter for multiple years, I have found that there are some things that every babysitter should know. Here is my advice for anyone thinking about babysitting in the future.

  • The main thing about babysitting is that you have to give them as much attention as possible, especially if there is more then one child that you are watching.
  • You also have to make sure every child is treated the same, and if there is any misbehaving you should let the parents know.
  • You should always answer the phone when the parents call at all times, and make sure you have a positive attitude at all times while on the phone.
  • If you’re going to be busy on a day you have to babysit let the parents know ahead of time. The same goes for being late. If you’re running a little late let the parents know.
  • If you plan on taking the kids anywhere make sure you let the parents know before you do so, and if you buy the kids anything make sure you get a receipt to show the parents what you bought for them, or just let the parents know that you brought the child something.

These is some basic advice for anyone who is looking to get into the babysitting world.
